Unveiling the Finest Partnership in Golf

On Thursday, 18th January, our interim CEO, Dan Lucking, met with the LET Access Tour Director, Ana Larraneta, to solidify what promises to be one of the finest partnerships in golf. The press conference was filled with enthusiasm and anticipation for the upcoming Women’s Golf Championship.

Host Venue – The Club at Mill Green 

We are thrilled to announce that the inaugural tournament of our 3-year partnership with the LET Access Series will take place at the esteemed Club at Mill Green, nestled in the heart of Hatfield.

Mill Green boasts world-class facilities, an impeccably designed course, and a welcoming atmosphere for players and spectators alike. This championship venue is set to create a memorable experience for everyone involved.

This marks a momentous occasion for our club, and we can’t wait to showcase the beauty and challenges of our course to both seasoned professionals and passionate fans.”

LET ACCESS

The story of the LET Access Series (LETAS) began when LET CEO Alexandra Armas felt there was an important need to provide greater competitive opportunities for women professional golfers and amateurs.

A growing number of players were attending the yearly LET Q School, and for those players who were unsuccessful at earning status on the LET, there were limited playing opportunities throughout the season until the qualifying school the following year.
In 2010, LETAS was launched with only three tournaments, which grew to five.

Just 13 years later, that same passion to improve women’s opportunities in the game has soared LETAS to new heights as a development tour.
As the only official development tour to the Ladies European tour, LETAS provides those who top the Order of Merit tables LET membership for the next season.

Whilst players in around seventh to 21st positions, if not otherwise exempt, grasp the opportunity to progress to the final stage of the LET Qualifying School.

✓ 54 of the LET winners since 2012 have played on LETAS.
✓ 55 players have earned LET cards since 2010.
✓ 23 members have grown to 117 members (and counting) in 2023 ✓ From five tournaments to 20 tournaments (in 2022).
✓ Tournaments played in around 18 countries across Europe
